After spending a great birthday weekend with my two sisters, I'm inclined to believe the cliche that things should be packaged in threes. Think about it. You've got three pigs; billy goats gruff; sheets to the wind; Musketeers; to get ready; strikes and you're out; 's Company (I loved that show growing up: Jack was such a loony guy!); ringed notebooks; and virtues held in the highest esteem: faith, hope and charity.
Running outfits, in my mind, also come in threes. As in, bottom, top, extra layer on top. Depending on the season, the extra layer could be a jacket, a heavy-duty long sleeve or a light long sleeve. Even in the summer months, I rarely start a run without that extra layer, as Colorado mornings are chilly year-round. (Yes, I'm lucky to live here...until you--gasp--consider the--gasp--altitude.)
Anyway, here's my current favorite workout trio:
The lucy Speedy Run Top II, a super soft, short sleeve gem that is adorable and wicks like a pro, thanks to strategically placed mesh panels. (Gotta love it when strategy enters into workout design.)
On top of the shirt goes the lucy Open Road Jacket, a stretch cutie which also sports mesh panels, as well as thumb holes (a blessing for anybody with longer arms) and two pockets for all your essentials.
Complete the package with this functional and flattering lucy Endurance Skirt, which has a wider band (see ya, muffin top!) and 5", stay-put shorts under the split skirt (see ya, chub rub!).
We've got this tri-rific outfit to give away today; lucy will send a $193 gift card, the value of the three items, to a winner, who can opt for this trio or choose from any of the other strategically designed clothes lucy offers. SBS and I love them because they realize that we female athletes come in all shapes and sizes--and regardless of our current shape, we want clothes that fit well and function even better.
In order to enter, please tell us in the comments below what is one trio you've currently got going on in your life: could be three kids (one actual child, one dog, one husband); your three favorite meals; your three best recent workouts; the tricycle your kid is learning to ride; anything that remotely relates to the lucky number three.
And hey: good luck, good luck, good luck.
